Firefox 3.5.5 issue tracking bug
Comment 1 Alex Legler (RETIRED) archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2010-04-01 16:04:49 UTC
CVE-2009-3978 (http://nvd.nist.gov/nvd.cfm?cvename=CVE-2009-3978):
  The nsGIFDecoder2::GifWrite function in
  decoders/gif/nsGIFDecoder2.cpp in libpr0n in Mozilla Firefox before
  3.5.5 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL
  pointer dereference and application crash) via an animated GIF file
  with a large image size, a different vulnerability than CVE-2009-3373.

It seems no vulnerable versions are in the tree. Should we make the decision about GLSA for users who might still have it installed?

Added to pending GLSA request.
